" You did not choose me, I chose you; and I have commissioned you to go and bear fruit, fruit that will last; so that whatever you ask from the Father in my name he may give you."
Damascus Ministries was founded and organized in 2015 after two years of worshipping in the living of Pastor Carlton and Lady Ivy’s home. The Lord placed in the heart of Carlton and Ivy the need to establish a House of Prayer and worship according to Isaiah 56:7 New King James Version (NKJV) “Even them will bring to My holy mountain, And make them joyful in My house of prayer. Their burnt offerings and their sacrifices. Will be accepted on My altar; For My house shall be called a house of prayer for all nations.” This desire was put on the heart of their children they decided as a family to start doing a family Bible Studies and Worship on Thursday night. Soon people started to hear that this was happening and wanted to join in with the worship. This turned in to Sunday evening services happening in their home and on March 20th, 2015 the church was founded. Damascus Ministries was the name given as a testament to how Pastor Carlton’s life was transformed in the same way the Apostle Pauls. Damascus has been sense 2015 helping those who have a desire to know and learn about the Messiah.
